Yep, this is likely one group (BTW: There are still situations, where
Fedora's GUI is either poor or unavailable). It's likely the same group
which is booting into "runlevel 3".

Other groups/use-cases, I see:
- Situations of emergency (Broken X-server, memory hogging-desktop 
desktop apps etc.)
- Debugging.
- Machines without GUI installed.

Probably the latter is hard to imagine to the folks who came up this
proposal. Yes, folks, there are machines which are being used without a
GUI!

I regret having to state this, but I have been thinking Fedora has quit
being a "general purpose distro" for quite a while.
